Tony DiTucci brings years of experience in the construction industry to his position of vice president of DGA Builders, LLC, a construction management firm with locations in both New York and Pennsylvania. Through his work with DGA, Tony DiTucci has been a part of both senior and multifamily housing developments.

Apartment buildings exemplify one type of multifamily dwelling, and newer apartment buildings often include modern amenities. Following is a list of some of the extras that are trending in newly built apartments.

1. Workstations – Some apartments provide Wi-Fi-equipped workstations in common areas to satisfy the needs of renters who may wish to work remotely, but require some quiet to do so.

2. Pet spas – Builders are finding that owners want luxury for themselves–and their pets. Some new buildings offer grooming services and exclusive areas for renters to exercise their pets.

3. Green leases – A selection of newer apartments are LEED certified and energy efficient, making them more affordable for tenants. To live in these buildings, renters must sign “green leases,” committing to practices such as composting, recycling, and using public transportation.

Tony DiTucci serves as vice president of DGA Builders, headquartered in Pittsford, New York. Outside of his work supervising the creation of multifamily housing units, Tony DiTucci often contributes to charities including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children was created in 1984 to bring government programs and nonprofit efforts together to efficiently locate missing children. Today, the organization operates 22 nationwide programs to help find children when they go missing.

One of the most important services the Center provides is a 24-hour hotline, allowing the public to immediately report sightings of missing children. It also maintains a similar CyberTipline in partnership with the FBI, which allows people to anonymously report suspected child abuse or sexual exploitation. The public is encouraged to report any suspected misconduct, whether it occurred online or in person.

To report a missing child or a sighting of a missing child, call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
